Emergence of Streptococcus pneumoniae of serotype 19A in France: molecular capsular serotyping, antimicrobial susceptibilities, and epidemiology.


We have studied 457 Streptococcus pneumoniae isolated in 2007 from adults and children. For all isolates, both latex agglutination and molecular capsular typing were performed. Antibiotic resistance patterns were determined. S. pneumoniae 19A was the most frequently isolated serotype (34.7%) both in children and adults. It represented 12.8% of the strains… (More)
